Dr Christian Sinclair, Pallimed, writes “Losing the Ability to Smell and Taste Didn't Miss You, Til Ya Left Me”
The Journal of Supportive Oncology (my favorite free journal with excellent practical palliative care articles) published a fantastic review of taste and odor dysfunction in cancer patients. If you read this article you could become a local expert because so few clinicians appreciate the implications or understand the treatment options for these significant quality of life markers. Obviously with this kind of endorsement it qualifies as a teaching file article.
Dr David finally blogs about Mike and I’m glad he did. What a great story! What a wonderful week for Mike (and those around him)! You really need to go over and listen to Mike play and sing.
It’s been a good week for Mike……….
Mike is a really cool kid. He plays guitar. No... I play guitar. Mike performs and makes records…….
Dr Isis, On Becoming a Domestic and Laboratory Goddess, continues "The Letters to Our Daughters Project".

Thanks for the link to the taste and smell article. I enjoy your blog quite a bit, and was actually planning on emailing you about an upcoming post on Pallimed. Thanks for the nudge to make me email you!
